There are some great end of season offers on outdoor toys. You can get a Little Tikes 7ft trampoline reduced from £199 to £117. The trampoline was one of the best toys we bought in our family.

It's also a good toy to have when you have other children around, as everybody love having a jump - although for safety it's recommended just to have one child on it at a time.
